LAURINBURG — A call about an aggravated assault at an ATM led to the arrest of the couple involved.

Laurinburg Police responded to a call of an aggravated assault at the Cash Point ATM located at the intersection of Fairly and Everett Streets.

An argument over money in a joint bank account between Brittanie Hunt, 26, and her boyfriend Edward Everett, 25, quickly escalated and became physical, according to Laurinburg Assistant Chief of Police Terry Chavis.

Hunt tried to flee to the car but Everett chased her down and pulled her from the vehicle, according to authorities.

When police arrived they arrested Everett on the charge of domestic assault on a female, with no bond. It was later discovered he had a warrant for his arrest out of Cabarrus County in Concord for driving while license revoked. The warrant had a $1,500 bond.

Deputies ran Hunt’s name through their database and discovered she had three warrants for her arrest — possession of marijuana, reckless driving and simple assault — from Johnston County.

Upon her arrival at the Scotland County Detention Center, deputies discovered Hunt was in possession of marijuana and was also charged with possession of controlled substance in a jail. She was given a $10,000 bond.
